, i want a man who had the good sense to marry michelle obama. [ applause ] >> i want barack obama to be the next president of the united states, and i proudly nominate him to be the standard bearer of the democratic party. now, folks, in tampa a few days ago, we heard a lot of talk, all about how the president and the democrats don't really believe in free enterprise and individual initiative, how we want everybody to be dependent on the government, how bad we are for the economy. this republican narrative, its alternative universe says that every one of us in this room who amounts to anything, we're all completely self-made. one of the greatest chairmen the democratic party ever had, bob strauss, used to say that every politician wants every voter to believe he was born in a log cabin he built himself. but as strauss then admitted, it ain't so. we democrats, we think the country works better with a strong middle class, with real opportunities for poor folks to work their way into it, where the relentless focus on the future with business and government actually working together t

indoors. but after a first night owned by michelle obama, after a second night owned by president clinton, expectations for the finale are sky high. msnbc's primetime coverage of the democratic national convention's final night begins right now. >>> thank you for joining us. i'm rachel maddow here at msnbc headquarters in new york. i'm joined by ed shultz, melissa harris-perry, chris hayes, and the senior strategist steve schmidt. lawrence o'donnell and al sharpton will be joining us in a moment. leading us from the site of the convention is our colleague and friend chris matthews. you said on opening night this week that democrats were having more fun than republicans. but that didn't necessarily mean that they were winning. the democrats have been ecstatic at previous conventions where they had gone on to lose. so how do you rate the democrats' happiness and their prospects? >> wow. you're hitting me with the toughest questions. there's two months left with a lot of economic news to come. we've got the unemployment rate coming out tomorrow morning. two more after that. for septe

after listening to nancy pelosi speak now and thinking back on michelle obama last night talking about being the mom and she nancy pelosi introduced herself as a mother and a grandmother. and we saw her daughter and granddaughter in the crowd. is it possibly a strong, efficient, accomplished political woman anymore without saying you are a mom first? >> i am not a mom. i guess it is -- absolutely. but i have to laugh about all the times where nancy pelosi has described her leadership in terms of motherhood and in terms of being a woman. and i think it does make her a powerful leader. and i think my life experiences that i bring to the job everyday also make me a strong leader. >> and can i follow-up. michelle obama could have told an alternative story that she went to princeton, she went to harvard law and became a successful lawyer. she went to the chicago hospital system making $300,000 a year. top 1%. it was a successful career story. and she probably had doubts about leaving that behind. why is that not possible to tell that story? >> well, it is possible. but i think people

. so what do you think a day later meant? >> after, i think everybody i think michelle obama knocked it out of the park i think for many different reasons. for the crowd, enthusiasm. many people look at her, wow, she could be a national candidate on the scene. for me, watching her, her speaking ability and the ability to generate that has grown dramatically in four years. >> what you heard from the romney campaign, it got much attention today. >> as the president said of mitt romney's speech that kind of tribute to success is to say i didn't watch it. no, this convention has run very smoothly, they've presented in front of america's most gorgeous families in all its rounds appearance, at home, in the white house and out around the country. that's what they set out to do. they did it with all the skill of hollywood. and that's not a criticism. they're supposed to do it that way. >> well, look, there's no question, she got the delegates on their feet. today, i saw more buttons with michelle obama's face than i thought the president's. is she real inspired people. i had people texting and

, michelle obama taking in the speeches here, she brought the house down with her own speech last night. once again tonight, bob schieffer is with me here in the anchor booth and our campaign 2012 team is down on the floor. bob, getting president clinton here to make this nomination speech tonight wasn't just a matter of asking him. what is the back story? >> no, you know, think about it, bill clinton's wife ran against barack obama four years ago and things have been a bit rocky between them since then. but about a year ago, the obama people began to make a concerted effort to get bill clinton on this stage tonight. it actually began with an invitation to play golf, then there were calls back and forth, he was asked his opinion on strategy and so forth, and so on, and now she here. they need him, because they think he can get through and talk to the pea people where they are weakest and that is white working class voters. >> bill clinton has become the rock star and tonight is going to be bill clinton night. >> in recent gallup polls president clinton had a 60 percent approval rating a

. tomorrow it will be obama alone with michelle. that picture is very important. that president clinton delivered. here's another bit of the president going big time tonight. >> since 1961, for 52 years now, the republicans have held the white house 28 years. the democrats, 24. in those 52 years, our private economy has produced 66 million private sector jobs. so what is the job score? republicans, 24 million. democrats, 42. >> wow! tonight you learn what the word surrogate means. that's a surrogate out there. bill clinton making the fight for barack obama. if you need someone in your corner, nobody is better than bill. for more i'm joined by the "huffington post." both are political analysts. look, is this the start of something big, joy? have they finally decided to put the surrogates on the road. michelle, bill clinton, all the best. instead of putting the juniors on. put the real big shots to defend they guy. >> if they're smart they'll take bill clinton's speech. cut i up into parts. each individual defense of policy and they will e-mail that to every other surrogate going

barack " obama and michelle obama's story. my father was a construction worker. he built our highways. my mother arrived in this country as a newlywed with no money, and no family. together, they realized the dream of sending their four children to college. the american dream. in any language, that is what this election is about. we need president obama for four more years to keep that dream alive. when president obama was elected, the american dream was on life-support. the middle class was being hauled out. we cannot afford to go back to the failed policies of the past. maybe governor romney has forgotten how he got into the mess that president obama faced. we have not. two wars, tax breaks for the wealthiest, the wall street bailout, katrina. nearly 9 million americans lost their jobs because of the great recession. our teachers, firefighters, and police officers were laid off, and our small businesses could not get the bail out banks to offer them any credit. how many construction workers like my father do you think the dream of reaching the middle class under those condi

the finale. they feel that michelle obama knocked it out of the park talking about her husband as a husband and in terms of his character. president clinton obviously framed the debate when it comes to the issues they feel like. and he is going to be the one who talks about himself and what he will do if he gets a second chance, a chance at four more years, wolf. >> what about the other speeches tonight, dana? i know the vice president's got a major speech. that will precede the president. but there will be other speeches as well. >> that's right. let's start with the vice president's speech. i just talk today a source familiar with that speech who said it's going to be kind of a series of anecdotes talking about what it has been like to serve at the president's side. and their goal there is to, again, serve as a bit of a character witness, but more specific to president obama's leadership style, how he makes decisions and things like that. i was told that it is a "very generous speech" when it comes to the kind of person president obama is. and of course joe biden is not going to g

hearing it. >> i love what i'm hearing. reenergize. michele obama head of home run last night. neil: i agree. that was the speech to beat. >> i think it's tough to beat her. great emotion. people understand that you could be the first family of a country but you still have the same problems as everybody else taking care of your kids, getting them to school and being a family unit. neil: make people relate to the more because they're still the president and first lady and they never have to deal with traffic. >> i guess they don't, but i think she was very human and i think the crux of promises was that we are just like you and understand the problems of the average folks. neil: the message i'm getting from a lot of democrats, not across the board to of the we don't like those guys that republicans like. we don't like the rich guys. the millionaires and billionaires. if i hear that expression one more time i think of going to vomit. we keep hearing it. it does not get all for you guys i know they love it. every time they hear it. but you have to speak to the nation. a lot. neil: what

. >> chenk, if we were going to base the election on twitter then the winner would be michelle obama. the most tweets her minute. she had 28,000 tweets per minute during we are speech, mitt romney in comparison was 14,000 tweets per minute. bill clinton did go up against football. we have to take that into consideration. we haven't even heard joe biden or president obama speak so far and already we're at 6.3 million tweets, far surpassing where the republican national convention was. what do we expect from obama tonight. >> i think it's going to be bigger than all of this, although they are going up against the music video awards on mtv. i wouldn't want to stack him against justin bieber. we saw obama for america had their first hash tag today strangely not highjacked. >> they've been highjacked by progressives. the obama campaign bought their first hash tag not highjacked. >> we saw that trending today bill clinton talking about that. i think what's been really interesting is new numbers from a pew study that came out today. how are we going to translate this, 16% have changed their mind
